Top Eight Pinot Grigio

7. Cooper Mountain Vineyards Pinot Gris Willamette Valley Reserve (2008)

« Prev Next » 7 of 8
Average price: $8.99 from 2 stores
This smells almost exactly like a handful of soil and river rocks mixed with a touch of lime zest, a few blades of grass and some crushed white flowers, adding some tallow notes with air. Rather light on entry, though this has some really glassy mineral attractive notes on the palate, very pure if low intensity citrus and bitter apple tones. This might be called a bit diluted but I like it for its elegance and freshness. This has Muscadet character on both the nose and the palate, with a wonderfully refreshing citrusy finish that ends with a touch of earthy spice. 89pts
